Meet the 17th Congressional Delegate Candidate

Let Eileen introduce herself to you… Below is the letter which she mailed to the Democrats of Oley. Eileen is running in the 17th Congressional District which includes parts of Berks, Schuylkill, Lebanon and Dauphin Counties.

Dear Fellow Oley Democrat:

I usually write to you, as your Democratic Committeewoman, to share my thoughts on those candidates I am supporting in a general election. But today I write to you as a delegate candidate to the Democratic National Convention.

I am Co-Chair of Berks for Obama, a large group of grassroots volunteers, dedicated since February, 2007, to getting Barack Obama nominated as the Democratic candidate for President of the United States. We have worked hard all year to present the citizens of Berks County with the possibility of nominating a candidate who can transcend our divisions of race, and who can rise above the partisan politics of old.

I am running for Delegate to the Democratic National Convention, committed to Barack Obama, because his candidacy has inspired me. I want a president who will unite our country. I want a president who will heal the years of separation built by those politicians who use our differences to divide us and drive a wedge through our common hopes and dreams. I believe that Barack Obama is a true leader, who can inspire a nation, and our world.

I am writing to ask you to vote for me to represent you at the Democratic National Convention. I am the only delegate on the ballot in the 17th Congressional District, who is from Berks County; in fact, I am the only delegate outside of the Harrisburg area. I ask for your vote to give me the opportunity to represent you at the convention in Denver.

Your vote for delegate is separate from your vote for presidential candidate. Each of our presidential candidates will get a percentage of the four delegate slots in our district. The number of delegates for each candidate depends on the percentage of the vote he/she receives. The highest vote-getters, among each candidate’s pledged slate of delegates, will be the ones who go to the convention to represent the Democrats in the 17th Congressional District.

The four delegates on the ballot who are pledged to Barack Obama are:

  • Eileen G. Prussman
  • J. Alex Hartzler
  • Loretta Barbee-Dare
  • Dan Miller

Please consider a vote for all four of us.

As always, I have paid the cost of creating and mailing this letter, as I would pay the cost of the trip to Denver, should I win the right to represent you there.

Very truly yours,

Eileen G. Prussman
Berks County Democratic Committeewoman, Oley 1

I Lied to You…

This video speaks for itself… and is dedicated to our “fainting Congress”.

This is also an open thread… so speak your mind if you choose.

And for added chuckles…

Was that George W Bush scaring those Congressional goats with an umbrella?
